Stayed in room 1001 for three nights. Queen bed with small sitting area and workspace. Good light in the room, top floor of hotel, end room. Good bedding. Tho on top floor, I heard lots of street noise and sirens. The hotel itself was quiet.
I arrived around noon and was greeted warmly, upgraded and able to check in early. Everyone who works at the hotel is lovely and helpful. I did not encounter one person who was rude or apathetic. The complimentary breakfast was very good for a free breakfast. Free bottled water and Diet Coke in room + coffee maker + small fridge.
Uptown is a nice area. I was surprised that while there's plenty of retail space, there's no shopping to speak of. It's all banks and restaurants. I was asked for money on the street every day, all day. The area feels fairly safe.
The rooms could use some freshening - the carpets have seen better days. Better lighting in the bathroom would be nice. Better towels, too.
Ordered room service one night and it was just so-so.
Housekeeping was a bit erratic: Some standard items missing (shower cap), turn down service skipped one night (no chocolates, but tip was taken). The room was very clean, so it was an amenities issue, not a cleanliness issue.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Decades before The Dunhill Hotel would open, local architect Louis Asbury Sr. was entranced by the great Italian craftsmen who created cathedrals famous for their soaring, elegant roof lines. Today, The Dunhill Hotel stands distinct on the Charlotte skyline, an amalgam of American, British, and Italian influences, something those with an eye for period detail can detect. Opened in 1929 as the Mayfair Manor apartment hotel, with half of its original 100 rooms permanent residences, today's Dunhill Hotel is a thoughtful evolution. A full restoration was recently completed, and various on-going aesthetic improvements all share a common goal--to celebrate the original vision of Mr. Asbury, with a nod to the needs of the modern traveler. ... more less
